Not good for Cree – 35mm * 16mm 8~10 Degrees Plastic Optics (5-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
Nice quality diffuser with clear plastic, except for a bit diffused in the middle. Has a 5.8mm hole for the LED, about 5mm deep. Does not fit a Cree XR-E, that has a diameter of 6.8mm. Could be a nice diffuser if it fits your need. It's cheep and well made.
Cons:
Does not fit Cree emitters. Hole is to small. I had the hole drilled out to axcept a XR-E. The beem was tight and the spead was not nice at all. I will not use this diffuser for my Cree based project.
Other:
It would have been nice if DX specified this diffuser a bit better, and told us what application it is ment for.
Bottomline:
Don't by it to use with a Cree. Could be useful for other emitters.
